"Poetry Written in Gasoline" as written by and David Per/lyxzen Sandstrom....
Scrap the extras
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Cut out the spareparts
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Keep our eyes wide open

Fuck the idol
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Reject the star
Star, star, star
Let's feed ourselves some
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Destruction

Convention blackmails
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Creativity
Yeah! Yeah!
This lack of challange
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Kills me, kills me, kills me, kills me

Scrap the extras
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Cut out the spareparts
Fuck the idol, idol
Let's keep our eyes wide open
Reject the star

The rhymes of revolution
Poetry written in gasoline
The rhymes of revolution
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Manipulate the obvious
Cowards bought by traditionalist manners
Scream at the herd that are heard the most
Without substance and with useless... banners
Banners, banners, banners

Your art, your art, is worth, is worth nothing
Like a city with no meaning
Like a city, with no meaning, with no meaning
Your creation holds, holds no hope

The rhymes of revolution
Yeah! Yeah!
The rhymes of revolution
Poetry written in gasoline
Poetry written in gasoline
Poetry written in gasoline
Ah! Yeah!
You had a witness over there

    General CommentNo comments? Are you people crazy? this song is epic... sure it couldve had about 2 minutes of it cut out but its still an awesome song with a lot of energy and seemless progression. I dont know what i mean when i say "seemless progression" but i know that thats exactly what this song has.

    General CommentI'm with ya Link this song kicks major ass... I remember loving the title of the song before I even played it.

    Can't say I know exactly what this song is about but it has an anti-establishment theme much like most of the Refused songs.

    This band is so under-rated and unless you heard of them from word of mouth or saw the episode of 120 minutes where they showed the new noise video (like i did) almost a decade ago. You are missing out.

    Specifically the album "the sound of punk to come" still makes me want to rock so hard and fast and unexpectidly after countless listens it still hits me like a ton of bricks moving faster than the speed of sound.
